Manual Reference Pages - NET::NSCA::CLIENT::INITIALPACKET (3)
Net::NSCA::Client::InitialPacket - Implements initial packet for the NSCA
This documentation refers to version 0.009002
# Create a packet from scratch
my $packet = Net::NSCA::Client::InitialPacket->new(
initialization_vector => $iv,
unix_timestamp => time(),
# Create a packet recieved from over the network
my $recieved_packet = Net::NSCA::Client::InitialPacket->new($recieved_data);
Represents the initial packet used in the NSCA protocol.
This is fully object-oriented, and as such before any method can be used, the
constructor needs to be called to create an object to work with.
This will construct a new object.
%attributes is a HASH where the keys are attributes (specified in the
$attributes is a HASHREF where the keys are attributes (specified in the
$packet_string is a string of the data packet in the network form.
# Get an attribute
my $value = $object->attribute_name;
This is a binary string, which is the exact length of the constant
$INITIALIZATION_VECTOR_LENGTH. If a string less than this length is
provided, then it is automatically padded with NULLs. If not specified, this
will default to random bytes generated by a Crypt::Random.
This specifies the configuration of the remote NSCA server. See
Net::NSCA::Client::ServerConfig for details
about using this. Typically this does not need to be specified unless the
NSCA server was compiled with customizations.
This is a UNIX timestamp, which is an integer specifying the number of
non-leap seconds since the UNIX epoch. If not specified, this will default
to the current timestamp, provided by time().
This methods returns the string representation of the initial packet. This
string representation is what will be sent over the network.
